It's that time of year again, and I've got the travel bug! The adventures will begin with the whole family in Vietnam and Cambodia. After my dad flies home, my ma, sister, and I will explore the beaches of Thailand. Then, my sister and I are let loose to roam Southeast Asia heading towards Nepal and northern India. Mid April I fly to Zambia to volunteer for a month at Appeased School before starting work in San Francisco. Ready or not, HERE I COME!

The Early Bird Gets the Worm
It never fails to get to the airport early and check, double
check, and check again your flight details.
Suzie and I arrived at the Kathmandu airport
with plenty of time to spare. I checked in no problem. Suzie, on the other
hand, rushed back to me with a worried look. Since she has two layovers in
India she needed a transfer visa which was news to us! In a panic, she booked a
flight with a different airline company to bypass one of the stops and pick up
her flight at her second destination. We pooled our cash together and had just
enough to cover the cost. Wow, did her flight just get expensive! After all the
commotion, I was worried we would miss our flights! Thankfully being in an
Indian and Hindu influenced airport, there was a line for men and a line for
women. As we were the minority, we breezed through customs and security in less
than five minutes. Suzie hopped in the boarding line, and I sat waiting for my
flight to New Delhi. One step closer to Zambia!
